Oculus Rift and 360 Panorama with Vizard Lite Edition

We successfully created a 360 panorama application for the zSight HMD and it has been working fine on the device. Recently, we purchased Oculus Rift and attempted to use the same 360 panorama application with Oculus Rift; however, we now have the problem that the application window size shrinks after 10 seconds or so (which is very frustrating). We could not figure out what is causing this problem and we very appreciate any help you may be able to provide in this regard.

Thank you in advance.

The Lite license supports fullscreen mode for 10 seconds and will automatically resize afterwards.

Thank you for your reply. We are not using full screen mode yet window size becomes smaller than initial window size after 10 seconds or so. We did not have the same problem with zSight HMD. Does that mean the Oculus Rift cannot be used with Vizard Lite Edition?

hi, this is an interesting question -- the LITE version allows to run in windowed mode with 800 x 600 resolution, and shows a logo in the corner - this was good enough for running an eMagin Z800 HMD in mono with the 'window' around it and the logo.

The Oculus requires more than that resolution, so you are right, Vizard LITE will not work for this, only for testing (10sec) but not for a real application or viewer.

There is a special version of Vizard available for a limited time currently (an offer that was made with/at SIGGRAPH 2013) which is Vizard WIRKS for $499. This version has the same features as the LITE version (including the LOGO in the corner) but is allowing unlimited fullscreen mode, i.e. it works for the Oculus HMD. If you are interested in this version of Vizard, please email

Hey there,
I saw a couple of your posts regarding 360 panoramas. I'm currently facing some issues with that and have not received an answer. Would you be willing to help?
